Got Planner Stamps? Make Cards with Them!

Hey, friends!

Have you seen Technique Tuesday's collection of planner stamps? One of the things I love about these little stamp sets is they are packed with all kinds of adorable images.

The images in these stamp sets look great in planners, but they work well on cards too! Take the recently released Planner Medical stamp set

Planner-Medical-Clear-Stamps-Technique-Tuesday-FBI used it to decorate this planner page as it's perfect for jotting down important medical things, like doctors' appointments, when to get pick up medication from the pharmacy and when you need to call the doctor.

Planner-Medical-Page-Teri-A-Technique-Tuesday

And Kymona Tracey used it in her planner too! Check out how she used it. 

Techinque-Tuesday-Medical-Planner-Kymona-Tracey_2Her pages sure look great! 

But the images in the set are also perfect for making "get well" cards, as well as cards for your favorite medical professionals. Check this out. 

Get Well Planner Medical Cards by Teri for Technique Tuesday

These two cards were so easy to make with the stamps!

I simply cut strips of cardstock and stamped several of the stamp set's images on them. Then I added a little bit of color to the images with markers.

I added the strips to a couple A2 cards. And I added a few strips of cardstock and patterned paper to the cards as well.

I finished off each card with a sentiment from the Chickadees 2.0 stamp set and a few enamel dots. Don't have any enamel dots? Try using gems or glitter glue instead.

PS. Who won the $20 gift certificate for commenting during our Christmas Blog Hop? That would be Nelya, who left a comment on Daniela's hop post. Congrats, Nelya! Check your email for a message from Teri about your prize. A big thanks goes out everyone who commented during the hop and left such lovely comments.

Tutorial: Blending Distress Oxide Ink with Makeup Brushes

Hi, everyone!

Bev just made a quick tutorial showing you how to create some  amazing Distress Oxide Ink backgrounds using plain white cardstock and makeup brushes. Yes, you read that right... she used some very inexpensive makeup brushes to blend the Oxide Inks. These backgrounds are fun to make and  look awesome!

Here is Bev's video tutorial plus you'll find step-by-step instructions below so you can print them and use them later!

Step-by-step tutorial for blending Distress Oxide Ink using makeup brushes:

  1. Start by getting out some cardstock for your inked background. Bev cut hers to be 4" x 5.25" so it would fit on a standard A2 card while still leaving a border around the edge of the card.
    Oxideseacreatures-step01
  2. Now get out the Distress Oxide Ink colors you want to use. Bev used Salty Ocean, Broken China and Peacock Feathers for her background. Also get out your makeup brushes. (Can you believe you can get a pack of 6 of these large brushes for only $5.99 on Amazon? Here's a link to the makeup brushes that Bev shows in her video. And here is another one with 6 large brushes that may be even more useful for backgrounds.)
    Oxideseacreatures-step03
  3. Swirl the makeup brush across your first Distress Oxide Ink pad.
    Oxideseacreatures-step04
  4. Swirl off any excess ink on scratch paper.
    Oxideseacreatures-step05
  5. Then using a light, circular motion, blend the ink onto the piece of cardstock.
    Oxideseacreatures-step07
  6. In between ink colors, rub the extra ink off onto your scratch paper. Repeat this process for each color of ink.
    Oxideseacreatures-step08
  7. When you are finished, use some mild hand soap to wash your makeup brushes.
    Oxideseacreatures-step09
  8. Spritz the background with water to make it even more interesting. Once the background is dry adhere it to a standard A2 card. Add stamped and die cut flowers or cute critters. Bev used Wendell the Whale and other sea creatures from the Animal House collection. Finish your card by adding a stamped sentiment.
